I am obsessed with maps. And charts. And diagrams. In an effort to better understand this world, I organize my perceptions. A favorite author of mine, Annie Dillard, put it this way:
“I pushed at my map's edges. Alone at night I added newly memorized streets and blocks to old streets and blocks, and imagined connecting them on foot. From my parents' earliest injunctions I felt that my life depended on keeping it all straight - remembering where on earth I lived.”
These maps and charts are my attempt to remember. And my way of sharing that memory with you.
